Double Top, Butcherknife Hill & Peak 7676
June 11, 2022

Double Top in the distance

Much closer, as I gain its lower slope

The top area, and benchmark

The big blueish silhouette peak is Humphreys. The biggie to the right is Kendrick Peak. The rounded one to the left is Red Mountain and the tan one in the center is Ebert Mountain

Summit of Double Top. The benchmark is on the rock with the smaller one perched on it

Butcherknife Hill

Looking up its south slope

Partway up. Kinda grim

This gnarly juniper is the summit, so says I

View east at Ebert Mountain

Southeast view, Humphreys, the big summit juniper to the right

Hiking down. The peaks from left: Red, Slate, Hochderffer, Humphreys, Kendrick. The Moritz Ridge lies below Kendrick. Potato Peak is to the right. My car is the shiny thing below a foreground hill

Peak 7676

South slope

Summit ahead. Some spot burns

Another spot burn

Getting more burny as I near the top

Summit ridge, the highpoint near the unburned tree in back

Hiking back down to my vehicle
